Our Strata Corporation was recently built, and we have been working with FirstService since June 2022. In September 2022, our Strata Corporation had two major water leaks, with a total claim amount of $2,250,000. In these two incidents, 70 units and common areas were affected. FS Insurance Brokers’ team negotiated with the developer and their insurance adjuster to reimburse the unit owners for their personal claims and repair the damaged units and common areas using their insurance policy rather than the strata’s.

We have been very pleased with their professionalism and openness and with the value we received during this stressful time. The fact that our property management company and insurance brokers, FirstService Residential and FS Insurance Brokers, work together has simplified the service and has brought down costs.
